Great insights

I've said elsewhere that I love listening to Jeff and WIll on their Big Gay Romance podcast, and this one is equally enjoyable. I think it's great that they are so open about their challenges in getting the work done and all the auxilary work that authors have to do in publishing and promoting.

If you're interested in the work of authors, this is a great podcast to listen to.

The Best Author Interviewers

I have said this before, but will say it again here, these guys are the best interviewers of authors out there. They actually read the books they are discussing in their entirety (not always true as you will know if you listen to and read book reviewers), they have read widely in the field and thus can make intelligent comparisons/contrasts and they are wildly enthusiastic. Their enthusiasm makes them a joy to listen to. As authors themselves, they also have the background to provide interesting and pertinent insights into the publishing business. The only warning is be prepared for your TBR list to grow exponentially every time you listen.
